The new track was created for the latest episode of the show

The song, titled "The Truth Don't Lie" was produced by Russell Broom, who has previously worked with Jann Arden, Art Bergmann and Jason McCoyk to name a few. 

Shaun Johnson, who plays "Grandpa Jack" on Heartland wrote the music and performed the song - with lyrics by Mark Haroun, a writer on the series -  along with cast members Amber Marshall and Baye McPherson.  Johnston also brought along some of his friends for the performance, which makes it 'extra special' for him. 

Johnston remarked behind-the-scenes that his friends are "A bonafide professional band called The Lovebullies." Watch the full episode to see The Lovebullies full performance with the Heartland cast.
